November's theme is Family Focus. Recommend books with your favorite examples of family relationships.

-You could highlight YA that has parents who are present and active in the main character's life.
-You could highlight adult novels that show aging family members, or stories about new parents.
-Which fictional family's Thanksgiving dinner would you most like to be at?
-Your favorite fictional parents, siblings, or children.
-Or point out books with family struggles. Maybe a neglectful parent is portrayed and you dislike that character, but if it's a large emphasis of the story that had an impact on you, share it!
-Don't forget the families that we choose for ourselves - very close friend groups can count.

The books you share don't have to be solely ABOUT family relationships. Any small role is fine. We just want to hear whatever has resonated with you. They do not have to be ideal families, and remember that there are many types of families.

Cassie This sounds like a fun topic to read about. A good book to read would be The Unexpected Everything.
